Great. Good thing I'm old.

Good luck, whippersnappers.

Don't worry. Science to the rescue!

They will study what happens when these viruses or bacteria are exposed to breakfast cereals.

and whether or not pheremones affect the sex life of
those same bacteria and viruses.

In other words, there is NO ESCAPE.

Beats dying in a Chuck E. Cheese melee.

This is FAKE NEWS – our Great Leader has pronounced the alternative facts: climate change is a Chinese hoax.

Any diseases emerging from the permafrost are caused by aliens.

This was covered in Fortitude (TV).

Long dormant viruses are springing back to life,
doo dah, doo dah

Can't be any worse than that found in the typical office fridge.

Forget the bugs -- it's much worse than that!

It's the dinosaurs all over again. Damn.

Andromeda Strain.
